Team Highlights: 17 steals, 21 assists
Despite missing our leading scorer, Olegario Orozco, our defensive pressure and a relentless offensive attack we avenged an earlier defeat to ascend to first place in league.
We emphasized attacking the basket and our guys did a fantastic job getting to the free throw line and finishing at the basket. We shot a season-best 53% from the field, led by Paul Toolson’s 70% shooting and perfect from the free throw line.
Although we shot extremely well, it was our pressure defense that helped produce our offense. We did a great job turning our 17 steals into instant offense.
Although we are currently sitting in first place there are three different teams only one game behind us and we have a difficult four-game stretch to finish out the regular season.
Next Game: HOME 01/29 w/Liberty Bell at 7 PM - A battle to stay in 1st place
